2013 Suzuki GSX-R750 Supersport Shootout Photo Gallery
Track day riders will be hard pressed to ride a more versatile performing sportbike than the GSX-R750.
The sportbike that started it all takes a shot at the 600 class. Check out the

review to learn how it fared.

Supersport Shootout X - Torque comparison chart.
The GSX-R750 offers nearly identical handling to that of the 600. Mid-pack handling scores didn’t give it any help on the scorecard.
The Suzuki 750 offers a much broader spread of power allowing the rider to run the bike a gear high in corners with the torque of the engine able to pull it at a lower rpm.
The GSX-R’s suspension components offer good chassis balance but lack the edgy feel of the R6 or Triumph.
The Suzuki 750 registered the highest braking forces into turns.
Like its little brother, the GSX-R750 failed to excite in any one category. No doubt it’s a great bike but it lacks the edgy performance that makes a great bike excellent.
2013 Suzuki GSX-R750.
The GSX-R750’s compact isn’t as tiny-feeling as the Honda but worked well for all of our testers.
Even with the extra displacement of its engine the GSX-R750 is one of the lighter bikes in this contest with the highest power-to-weight ratio.
The Suzuki’s Brembo monoblocs function well but suffer from a degree of brake fade during moderate use.
The GSX-R750 shares identical running gear to the 600 except of course for its larger bore engine.
The GSX-R750 shares the same cozy seat as its 600 brother. It is one of the more comfortable bikes to ride in this test.
The GSX-R750’s broader powerband makes it more entertaining to ride on the street compared to 600cc sportbikes.
The GSX-R has a very low center of gravity and responds with accuracy to the rider’s input.
As far as value it’s really hard to argue with Suzuki’s GSX-R750. It’s a lot of motorcycle for the money.
The ability to adjust the height of the footpegs is a big plus on the street. It helps make the Suzuki’s cockpit more accommodating for a wider range of rider sizes.
While the Suzuki chassis doesn’t offer quite as much feel mid-corner as the MV Agusta or Triumph it’s still plenty adept at carving through a turn.
The Suzuki’s gearbox feels of good quality but didn’t shift quite as slickly as the Honda, Kawasaki or Yamaha.
The Suzuki has an awful lot of character for a Japanese sportbike. We love its throaty engine roar during acceleration that makes it more fun to ride.
The Suzuki’s extra engine displacement give it more acceleration ‘oomph of corners.
